Make A Difference: Covenant Shelter of New London

WHO: Four families and seven homeless individuals staying at the emergency shelter.

AGENCY: Covenant Shelter of New London.

THEIR SITUATION: Four families with children are staying at the shelter, as are seven single men sharing the shelter’s dorm.

WHAT TO GIVE: Small-dollar amount gas cards (Stop & Shop cards can be used for gas!), small-dollar amount gift cards from Walmart, Target or other local stores, bus passes, sweatshirts and sweatpants of all sizes. Arts and crafts kits for the children, washable plastic toys, baby bottles, wipes and baby blankets.
